After enjoying some success as R&B artists, the group felt they were not fulfilling their purpose as messengers of God's word. After opening for many R&B acts, the group members became uneasy about the lives they were living. Group member Minister Tellas Thompson recalls, "I was going straight from the clubs on Saturday nights, getting no sleep, to performing with the church choir on Sunday morning. It was hard to serve two masters."
Hard indeed, considering all three of these talented artists had full-time careers and were anointed church musicians when they were not busy performing in the R&B circuit.
"You could just see the stares from the choir members when they knew you had missed a practice to perform in a club," explained Jeremy Horne. "Everybody says they understand and support you but you just donÂ¹t feel right."
Cedric Lester's struggles between his musical and church commitments hit very close to home, "My father is a Pastor and I am a musician in his church, He has always supported my music career, but deep down I know he wished I wasnÂ¹t performing in some of the places we were traveling to."
The group had just finished working on their R&B release titled "Long Awaited" when Thompson felt that R&B was not the genre of music to which they should be dedicated. The other members agreed and together they committed to lift their voices for the glory of God.
Recently, the group formed their own record label EPI Entertainment. Cedric, Jeremy and Tellas realize they are finally traveling down the right road. With their new release, "True Love," they spread the word to the community, as well as themselves and the Lord, that they are Believers Relying On The Holy Anointing.
